If Max Baucus Has His Way, I’m Joining the Racists – I Mean, Teabaggers

By now it is common knowledge that Blue Dog Montana Democrat Senator Max Baucus is a kept man, a lap dog of the health care lobby.

“In the past six years, nearly one-fourth of every dime raised by Baucus, D-Mont., and his political-action committee has come from groups and individuals associated with drug companies, insurers, hospitals, medical-supply firms, health-service companies and other health professionals. These donations total about $3.4 million, or $1,500 a day, every day, from January 2003 through 2008.”
– The Montana Standard, June 14, 2009

With Baucus’ bill finally emerging from the Senate Finance Committee, we are learning he intends to carve chunks off of Medicare, reduce aid to people struggling with health care premiums, and force everyone into the private insurance system by levying fines for those unwilling or unable to buy in. How that’s going to work, I cannot say. If you can’t afford insurance, you can’t afford a fine for not having it, either.

Not only would all this be a total betrayal of any half-ass attempt at improvement President Obama may have intended for our dilapidated health care system, but it would be a total give-away to the very pirates who have ruined the system in the first place: the same interests whose lobbyists have been dumping money into Baucus’ campaign coffers for the past six years.

Okay. Barrack Obama says he won’t go after Republican Vice Presidential pick Gov. Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol’s pregnancy. Well then brother, clear a path, because that crazy wench has got it coming. And I, for one, have no scruples. (Too many years being used as a punching bag by the Rush Limbaughs of the world. FUCK YOU, RUSH!!!)

Let’s see now, you have a newborn down syndrome special needs child at home and your seventeen-year-old daughter is pregnant by her backwoods boyfriend and fully intends to keep the child. Shit, now’s a perfect time to run for the Vice Presidency of the United States of America! Continue reading

Not Worth a Hillary of Beans

Okay, people, get it together.

Hillary Clinton will not be the Democratic nominee for President of the United States.

As recently as last summer I was fully convinced that Clinton would be our next Democratic contender. I just assumed that she wouldn’t stop until she got the nod. I was close.
